Palm Valley Church Foster & Adoption Information Fair Participation

Palm Valley Church Foster & Adoption Information Fair Participation

When the kind people at Palm Valley Church in Goodyear, Arizona – a short drive west of Phoenix – announced that they were going to host a Foster & Adoption Information Fair, our enthusiastic team here at Arizona Family Law Attorneys knew we could help out. The event was on Saturday, July 23rd from 8:00 AM to 12 noon, and welcomed people from all around the region who were interested in foster care programs or adoption. There were also orientation classes to give more details regarding foster care and adoption to the groups in attendance.

Our firm’s own Shawnna and Michelle set up a table at the fair. People were able to ask questions regarding adoption and foster care adoption, giving them a chance to clear up potential misunderstandings and legal concerns before they committed to a program. As a highly-rated, highly-acclaimed Phoenix family law attorney, Ms. Riggers was able to help numerous families throughout the morning, and we would like to take this time to thank them all for coming out. Adoption and offering foster care are truly kindhearted and courageous acts that cannot be applauded enough.

Helping Foster Children Thrive

We also worked with Arizona Children’s Association to endorse their Thrive mentor program during the fair. Young adults who are aging out of foster care face social and emotional obstacles that most others do not; Thrive is a unique program that allows these aspiring youths to mentor and form friendships with members of their community and foster care “alumni” to help them on their way to independent adulthood. A few of Thrive’s greatest goals are to prevent homelessness and unplanned teenage pregnancy, promote healthy school habits that lead to graduation, and offer the skills to find gainful and steady employment.
